For Sale Motorola Color Tube console

I have an early rectangular Motorola tube color console for sale.TV works as found,but should
be gone over.I think the CRT was replaced as the tube looks to be installed slightly crooked (as seen in the pic).The "Drexel" cabinet is fairly good condition too.Asking $50 More pix at http://s242.photobucket.com/albums/f...er66/motorola/

That isn't the Motorola most VKer's knock. It's a 28 tube deluxe model. I cant describe the color circuit, but it's their own design and seemed to perform fairly well. That was my first color set. We ran it for a solid nine years, when that wonderful 23EGP22 started to look pretty washed out. Probably only needed about six or eight tubes in all that time. How many owners can boast that they had a set that never needed a flyback or any component replacements. When I scrapped the set, it still had the original 6JM6 horizontal output tubes. The reason I scrapped it, is because it was in a flood, due to a sewer backup.

hello again mr pat, the sams says 12 1966 so would this set be from that year or was the same model made 2 years in a row.and the crt will have to come out as it has some issues under the safety glass and dont know yet if its bonded or not , but ill find out for sure. have you seen my other set, 1963 silvertone roundie, that set kicked my butt but got it done and plays wonderful. you can find it under silvertone there is an attachment there.

That was one of the last of that model. They quit building that chassis in mid 1966. Several variations of that chassis were built between 1963 and 1966. The TS907 was simular but used a round CRT. Their first rectangular set used the earlier version of the TS908. About the same time they built a el-cheapo roundy that was a series string, with a bunch of odd-tubes. That was a TS912 and used that funky color circuit used in the newer models. Only that one used a 15LE8.

That late of a model uses a automatic deguasser themo switch and a few minor changes. That date of manufacture is shown such as 6M66, with the "M" being their bat wing logo.

well got the crt straightened out, was not as easy as it should have been since the corners were way off and had to take out and install somewhere around 9 times until i got the corners right then it fit fine.there is a slight amount of cataracts around the edge but really cant see it and with the tube lined up with the outside trim it hides more. this motorola is much more complicated then the simple ctc12. does anyone know where or if there is a service switch for the color set up?

I have a table model Motorola that is a little newer and it doesn't have a switch, which makes it harder to do a good setup. But I can't speak for this model.
